I just rode back from the pub in the coldest weather I’ve ever cycled in.

Man rides down the street in that cold, people know he’s not afraid of anything.

Until the police take away his coat, blanket or require him to divest of fossil fuels.
Remember that black Ice thing I was telling you about way back when? And you said you don’t get black Ice? Remember that? Well what happened on the I 95?
I don’t like them climate scammers anymore than you, but don’t BS people!
And don’t take this as Me against you! It’s not, I like what what you are doing, and keep it up! We are depending on it! but Don’t BS people!
And if anyone is wondering what that is about? It is about riding a bicycle at this time of the year! Now can you imagine you are driving along and someone on a bike in front of you goes down?
?? What are you struggling to articulate?
Good points! :)
… become coherent !!!
2 days in a row now with zero sunspots:
You do realize that Tony is now living in Colorado and not Maryland?
I totalled my first car thanks to black ice on route I-65 in Indiana in 1971. So yes we do get black ice here in the USA.
It is what had me nervous driving here in North Carolina yesterday after freezing weather over night with ice pellets and freezing fog. I saw over a dozen cars that skidded off the road in a 25 mile stretch.
Had the same thing in Iowa. Not safe being on that no matter what one is doing
Black Ice Matters!
My nearest wunderground station in Loveland – about 100 yards away from the house – got down to -18F. It’s now warmed to a sultry -14F.
I did not ride my bike. In fact, I’m afraid to even open my garage door lest the spring shatter.
I am afraid to open mine too.
I’ll stick with my heated seats.
If I am going to exercise outdoors in freezing weather I’ll go X-country skiing. No idiot drivers to dodge.
You are full of surprises, gator.
At least his pants crease will be straight. !!
And if a female was riding…
hot arse !!!
Just did a Google image search on “hot arse” :-)
Some for you, as well :-)
A word of advice. If you try this own your own, just be sure there is no steam setting.
I wonder what it felt like. How did you bundle up? I’ve biked in 30°F weather for a couple of hours and everything was fine except my feet, which nearly froze.
Horse back riding has the same problem. Pressing down on an iron stirrup sitting in a cold wind.
When it got down to minus 20F to minus 30F and below, I didn’t even bother to take the last blanket off my horse. I just rode him bareback sitting on top of the blanket. I still felt like my legs would shatter when I dismounted.
That doesn’t sound like fun.
This does though:
I wonder why that image didn’t show? I guess I forget again how to do images here. Well it worked in WUWT.
It can be fun….
I see that could be fun. Brisk feeling!
But how did you get that image up? Can you show again how to get my image here to display:
1. Type in text in comment box describing image.
2. space down a line or two.
3. Put the picture you want up in a separate window.
4. Right Click on the picture
5. Instead of copy image, go down one to Save Image.
6. Save to your computer and rename as needed. Just make sure it ends in (DOT) gif, png, jpg, or jpeg
7. Go down below comment box and click BROWSE. That should bring up a file uploaded screen. Click the image you want. It should show a thumbnail. If it doesn’t check you have the correct end listed in #6.
8. Click post comment.
As far as I can tell you are limited to one image per comment and it goes at the end of your typed in text on a separate line.
Ok, thanks a ton! I’ll give it a shot. And btw that skiioring looks a blast! Here’s that image, possibly:
Well, it worked! Thanks again! In WUWT it’s different, where you just put the url for an image on it’s own line I think, like you use to do with StevenGoddard.
Eric they and most of us here are all now “Deplorable Deniers”. Perhaps would should add the title D.D. behind our screen names.
And that skiing looks insane!
It is called skijoring and it is.
Don’t walk back from the Pub if you are a right winger. Recall Andrew Breitbart!!!! Just sayin.
I’m a weather watcher from Minnesota going on 50 years. My rule of thumb from the past is super cold temps almost never arrive before New Years Day. Obviously not the case this year. Many temp records will be broken this Sunday morn. Which reminds me, the global warming nuts keep telling us a few degrees warming is perilous. So I’m to believe that 32 below, (without wind) is life threatening, but 29 below is no big deal???? Ya…Right. Such Tomfoolery
Have you ever checked out Weatherbell.com?
If not, here is a link.

Joe Bastardi puts out these videos. The “Weekend Update/aka Saturday Summary give you an idea what their long term forecast is looking like and also explains why.
If you were pedaling against the wind, you need to add more wind chill…and please be careful. Those temps are dangerous to be riding (or walking) in.
And all this because of an apple
I like this one better. Adam pointing to Eve and Eve pointing to the snake and the Lion already eyeing the lamb.
It is the one on the right who would have the biggest problems these days.
The guy in blue is “omnipotent”, so he won’t have

I’ll leave proof to homework. Omnipotence has dull consequences.
Back in the early 1960s I once played a hockey game when it was 30 below zero, not that anyone believes me. After the game, it was about a mile walk to get home and it was very windy. At one point we had to hide in a culvert to warm up a bit. Then we came to the main road and there was absolutely no traffic on it, which never happened before or since. Everyone was staying inside to keep warm.
One day in Feb of 1983 I think it was, as an SF soldier on an a team in 3rd Bn., 10th SFG (A) I was at Smugglers Notch in Vermont doing the down hill portion of our annual ski and winter warfare training. Windchill on the peak and windward side of the mountain reached -90 deg. F. The primary slopes were on the lee side and we only got into that wind when we rode the lifts up but it was still absolutely miserable. I had a mustache and the balaclava I was wearing froze to it. We had the slopes to ourselves because even the ski patrol had the sense to go hole up. I have been up much higher in mountains from Norway down to the Dolomites in Italy and in the rockies but never experienced cold like that. The cold in New England and upstate NY has a more biting character for some reason.
Skiing in leather boots is a completely different ball game compared to plastic. Far less forgiving. Technique must be much more exact or your going down. Those leather boots also don’t provide near the insulation of plastic downhill or touring boots. But we used leather because you just don’t have the room nor can stand the weight of carrying two different sets of boots when your in the field.
About that time (1979-1994) I was X-country skiing in the White Mountains.
It is darn cold there. I think because of the higher humidity.
I was living in northern Maine at the time of the hockey game. I also had a paper route and one day, late in the afternoon when it was totally dark, a blizzard was raging and I was delivering papers. About half way through the route my eyebrows had iced up, so I went home to warm up. Then I noticed my hands had swollen up – perhaps frost bite. After warming up, I went back and finished delivering the papers. I think I was colder then than ever, even when years later I went to the South Pole and it was 40 below.
Tony, thanks for illustrating an obvious point.
Fossil fueled and heated automobiles are good.
Even so, Saturday morning I drove from Colorado Springs to Boulder, and the lowest temperature the car thermometer registered was minus 7, but the heater couldn’t quite keep my feet warm during that 3 hour drive.
Coldest I have ever experienced was about -40 degrees. I don’t recall whether that was C or F. :)
-40F = -40C
It’s interesting how our minds drop unimportant details, is it not? :)
